Contemporary blinds can completely transform your home when changing your window dressing.

Alongside obvious design benefits, many other benefits go hand-in-hand with swapping your current window treatments to contemporary style blinds.

We talk to customers every day about what blinds can bring to a home. So, we’ve compiled a detailed guide explaining all the benefits – including one or two you may not have considered.

Contemporary blinds are an excellent way of adding insulation to your home

When we think about keeping our homes at a comfortable temperature, the first thing we tend to think about is central heating. Window dressings contribute to temperature more than most people think.

A typical house loses around 10% of its heat through the windows. Heat loss doesn’t only happen through glass either – window frames, spacers, and vents are also responsible for heat loss.

It’s not just cold air that blinds will help with either. On those uncomfortably warm summer days, contemporary thermal blinds will help to shade your room from the sun’s hot rays.

If you’ve tried rearranging a room only to find yourself stuck with the same old options, contemporary blinds could be a great problem solver.

Unlike curtains, blinds generally don’t take up much room in front of windows and doors. Some sit completely within your window frame. Not only that, blinds can even be remote-controlled – so you don’t have to worry about access to open and close them.

This can free up vast amounts of floor space previously taken up with curtains and the needed access space.

Freeing up space in front of windows can completely revitalise your space – giving you a world of new furniture and layout options.

Contemporary blinds can add privacy to your home.

Traditional window dressings like curtains don’t offer much in the way of privacy. Of course, when closed, they’re effective, but no one wants to leave their curtains closed if they’re out during the day.

Many contemporary blind styles do away with privacy concerns by offering a best-of-both-worlds approach. You can angle your panels so that passers-by can’t see into your home – without making it look like your home is unoccupied.

This isn’t just important when you’re out; getting ready for the day with sunlight coming into your room is nice.

Again, a quick adjustment of your blinds’ panels means you can combine light control and privacy – so you can enjoy the sunlight as you dry and dress without worrying about privacy.

Made-to-measure window blinds add kerb appeal.

Often, window dressings are designed to look good inside your living space – with little thought to how your home looks from the outside.

Contemporary blinds are different, though – they add crisp lines and beautiful materials that can be seen inside and out.

How your windows look is an important part of enhancing the kerb appeal of your home. Mismatched blinds, curtains, or shutters may look okay inside your home – but symmetry is the key to true window beauty!

Since contemporary-style blinds can work with windows, bi-fold doors, skylights, and even conservatories – they could be the key to ensuring your home stands out for all the right reasons.

Some contemporary blinds are even available in waterproof fabrics too. This means you can continue your style in rooms where blinds have previously not been a practical option.

You can choose from a range of blind designs for bathrooms, kitchens, and even rooms that contain pools and hot tubs. Or each unique space.

Blinds can be made to match your interior design style

Contemporary blinds are available in an almost endless range of colours and designs. From Venetian blinds with real wood slats in striking dark woods and soft natural light woods to the enormous range of fabrics and patterns for vertical blinds and roller blinds.

Popular colour and fabric options include:

  • Elegant Grey cream
  • Cool white woods
  • Alternate patterned and plain panels

If the stunning collection of natural wood hues, fabrics and patterned designs isn’t exactly right, you can take advantage of our ‘Any Colour & Digital Print’ option. We can take any high-quality image and create blinds based on a design of your choice.

Modern interiors are unique and varied – so you shouldn’t settle for off-the-shelf window blinds. From ultra-modern styling to traditional prints, there’s a blind design that will add the perfect finishing touch to your space.
